2017 BMW M240i coupe

Pros: Acceleration is pleasingly brisk in 230i and truly invigorating in M240i; agile handling; comfortable ride quality with available adaptive suspension; available all-wheel drive and a convertible body style

Cons: A bit pricey, especially as options are added; extra-cramped rear seat; limited cargo space

CG Says: The 2017 BMW 2-Series has two new engines. The base 228i becomes 230i with the addition of a new turbocharged 248-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, while the M235i gains a turbocharged 335-horsepower 3.0-liter 6-cylinder and becomes M240i. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines, though a 6-speed manual is available on either as a no-cost option. The M2 gains wireless phone charging and Wi-Fi hotspot, but its drivetrain is unchanged. Available features include lane-departure warning, forward collision warning and mitigation, heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and park-assist sensors. The BMW 2-Series coupe offers genuine BMW performance and character in a smaller, more affordable package. You’ll be giving up passenger and cargo room in the bargain, but to some sporty-car buyers, the 2-Series’ compact dimensions are an asset.
